Is Paul 'apocalyptic'? This book answers this key question through examination of early Jewish and Christian apocalyptic texts

About the Author

J. P. Davies is Tutor in New Testament at Trinity College, Bristol, UK.


This study reliably conveys the broad outlines for those who know nothing about the 'apocalyptic Paul' movement, while adding enough well sourced material to interest those more familiar with it. * Bulletin for Biblical Research *
...this work is lucid and well-written, and Davies argues his thesis well. Davies's approach in summarizing opposing views is balance ... Davies makes contributions in at least four areas: (1) he traces the flow of thought within the "apocalyptic Paul" movement; (2) he helpfully explains the complexities behind defining the "slippery" terms "apocalyptic" and "cosmology"; (3) he illuminates and corrects many of the false dichotomies apparent within this movement; and (4) he fills a lacuna in Pauline studies by reading Paul against the backdrop of select Jewish and Christian apocalypses. * Southeastern Theological Review *
Davies' study provides a good insight in the current discourse on the apocalyptic in anglophone research. It offers a helpful differentiation in the problem of apocalyptical Paul who is not that one-sided dualistic apostle he is long thought to have been. * Biblische Zeitschrift *
